Camp­ing is the ul­ti­mate trip for fit­ness fans. Eat­ing al fresco, run­ning through the coun­try­side, sleep­ing on the ground – there’s some­thing very or­ganic about a camp­ing va­ca­tion that ap­peals to our ad­ven­tur­ous spirit. And just as fit­ness has hit the fash­ion­able fast lane, camp­ing is set to be­come pretty stylish this year too. In fact, fes­ti­val go­ers are put­ting aside their party passes in favour of far health­ier week­ends at well­ness fests such as Vir­gin Sport events in the UK and US or Aus­tria’s Women’s Sum­mer Fes­ti­val.

How­ever, you don’t have to go far to en­joy the great out­doors – one study from GO Out­doors shows that thou­sands of us will re­main in the UK for our sum­mer hol­i­day. And there’s so much great-value kit to choose from – such as the Apache 4 Tipi Tent (from £69.99 at gout­; pic­tured) – that it’s easy to camp in style this sea­son.

Pack your tent, ex­plore the UK coun­try­side and get back to na­ture this sum­mer.
